Best Source For Batteries at reasonable prices?


Need 10 cell 1250mh and 7 cell 600 mh packs for two planes. What is the the Best source for either packs or individual batteries? Do local Home Centers, Best Buy, or Radio Shack carry our batteries at reasonable prices? My LHS does not have a good supply to work with.

Best regards,
Martin

Martin,

From my extensive library of links:

Packs & Cells - Radical RC - www.radicalrc.com
www.batteriesamerica.com
www.batterystation.com/nicads.htm

Cells - www.tnrtechnical.com

Make sure cells have tabs included in price (if you want them) or are button-top.

I use 800AR's , 1600 Nimh, and 600AE's as my benchmark for cell prices.

I consider our battery prices competitive, and we are in Austin. We do not use a retail location since we are an onlne Co-op of local hobby stores already, but I am flexible and would be willing to drop off an order if you wish to save on shipping. Whatever would be convenient for you.
BUT we only use Sanyo cells, so if you are looking for the cheapy chinese cells, we do not have them for flight packs. They just do not perform well over time.

You owe it to yourself to try Cermark http://www.cermark.com

I've purchased the following from them:

(2) 7x600AE
(2) 8x600AE
(1) 10x600AE
(2) 8x2400RC
(1) 12x1250SCR
(2) 10x2400RC

All Sanyo, all at the best prices I could find, all delivered in three days, and all have functioned flawlessly (haven't flown the 10x2400s yet).
